THE .OREGON-.DAILY: JOURNAL', PORT LAND, WEDNESDAY, : JANUARY &I5,V 1919:
SHIPPERS ASKED TO
- CAR LOADING RULES
Benefits of War, Time Regulation
Is Seen and Extension to
. Permanent Use Urged.
'Coincident with the withdrawal of
food administration regulations govern-
in gr minimum carload for licensed com
' modities, local officials of the United
State railroad admftiistratlon are send
tnff broadcast to shippers an appeal to
fountarlly maintain loading: practices
established during the war.
The policy of the railroad adtninistra
i Uon. in regard to car loading is set forth
as follows by W. C. Kendall, manager
, car service section:
; -. "The heavier loading: of freight cars,
til campaign for which has had the
. ; valued aid and support of the several de
partments of the government, as well as
the hearty cooperation of shippers, has
been a very material factor in accom
plishing the follow ing :
,"1. An Increased car supply.
."2. Lessened congestion of railroads,
particularly at terminal points.
3. Improved service made possible
i " by '-lessened congestion.
Taking full advantage of car carry
; lng capacity means more than the mere
' ' conservation of equipment. It not only
saves equipment for freight which could
not otherwise move promptly, but also
minimizes congestion and makes pos
' slble greatly Improved service.
'-'" "If.it be thought that the improved
car supply, which exists at the, present
. time makes it less necessary to load cars
to full capacity It should be borne In
.', " mind that a return tovthe old practice
V, of light loading would speedily bring
, about another car shortage and cones-
tlon, by reason of the Increased number
of cars required to carry aj given ton-r-.-
nage. Numerous shippers have volun-
i teered the information that it is their
- i purpose to make the fullest use of equlp-"-
ment maintaining the record established
during the war, regardless of tariff
- minimums. .They apparently realize the
V advantage gained, which prevents useless
ast and a retrn to transportation
rtltions which formerly prevailed.
, ,drailroad administration will con-
ts efforts to closely supervise the
- of all commodities, in order that
yjemands for service may be promptly
J met and we ask the continued coopera
Uon of all shippers to that end. Re
ports of all instances of light loading
'. will be made to the car service Bectlon
; : as heretofore."
